Duncan Hardware and Supply, Bedford, IN, circa 1962

Duncan’s Creative Kitchens actually got its start in 1962 as the kitchen department of Duncan Hardware, owned by J.C. Duncan, Sr. in Bedford, Indiana. J.C.’s son, Bill, spun-off the kitchen design business from his parents’ hardware store as Duncan’s Custom Kitchens.  In 1984 he relocated to Florida.  After working for other kitchen design firms for the first couple of years, Bill launched Duncan’s Creative Kitchens in Bradenton in 1987.

Bill’s son, Scott, officially joined the family business in 1993, and quickly became the principle designer. He has actually been involved since the 2nd grade, when he accompanied his father to the jobsite to ‘help’ install his first kitchen. Not long after that, Scott realized that he would make a better designer than installer. Graduating from IndianaUniversity in 1992, Scott earned his Interior Design license from the State of Florida in 1998 (# ID0004131).

Upon Bill’s retirement in 2000, Scott became the third generation of Duncan’s to lead the family business.  Scott has taken an active role in the Central Florida Chapter of NKBA, serving on the executive committee from 1995 to 2008. The National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) is the largest national organization directly associated with the kitchen and bath industry. It provides its members with ongoing education and current design trends.
